No doubt the talent needs to improve, but we have basically the same guys back that we had last year and we are a worse defense. We were decent against the run last year and bad against the pass. Now we are awful at both. We have to be more aggressive and better coached. Staying the course is not working. It is time for Bielema to make a change in the DC.
The team embarrassed themselves and the entire state of Arkansas. Is that the product we’re paying all this money for? Someone, and possibly others, need to go just to regain a portion of credibility with the fan base after that display of incompetence. You would have thought Bo Jackson was in the backfield. I believe the young men have the talent to compete. The coaches have to be held accountable for this beat-down of monumental proportions. Smith has to go.
We’ll see what gives in the off week. CBB could probably demote him. I doubt it. CBB is too stubborn. CBB keeps talking about setting the edge against spread teams. Either the defensive staff can’t coach it, the players don’t understand the scheme or our players are truly are interior- I don’t believe that. Something has to change or we’ll see banners flying around the stadium soon. I hope he makes changes. I like the way he runs the program.
Coach Pruitt is one of the reasons Mark Richt is now coaching at Miami. At Alabama a lot of coaches look really smart. Hell Larry Coker and Gene Chizik won national championships. It is simple: Jimmy and Joe. Only got 24 like we need. Gonna need at least 24 more.
